Africa Sustaining Angels
Africa Sustaining Angels started when a group of friends visited Shelter Children’s Home in Kenya. The shelter provides a home and education for children who were abandoned, neglected and/or abused. Inspired by the amazing work of the Director, Mary Muiruri, we formed a volunteer committee called “Africa Sustaining Angels”.
Initially, the shelter was 100% dependent on donations to support the children’s needs. Then HRS TrueHope stepped in and created a new operating model driven by sustainability initiatives, which generate revenue and reduce operating expenses.
Today the shelter cares for 150 children and is 75% self-sufficient based on the success of our sustainability projects and program.
Wishing for Water
Hear from Joel Holcomb about Shelter Children's Home current self-sustaining initiatives, recap of the Wrap Your Heart Luncheon, and the direction of new initiatives that need your help. All donations are funding an elevated water tank to store water at Shelter Children's Home.
Your contribution enables Mary and Shelter Children's Home in Ngong, Kenya to store and sell water, furthering their self-sustaining efforts. With your help, Shelter Children's Home can rely less on monthly donations and focus their efforts on building their community by selling water in addition to their current initiatives.
